Hi Michael,

Congratulations go out to Kimeda sensei for his achievement in attaining 9th dan. I had the pleasure of training with him years ago. I hope the celebration goes wonderfully well!

Best,

Hello Michael,

My warmest, heart-felt congratulations go out to Kimeda Sensei. I am a jodo student in Pickering and have had the pleasure of training with Kimeda Sensei on numnerous occasions. He is one of my favourite people I have met on my journey in the martial arts. A true gentleman (thoug kinda scary when he gets going!). Enjoy the celebrations.

Sincerely,
Steve Kubien
